Evaluating empirical evidence for decline in temperate woodland birds: A nationally threatened assemblage of species

Rayner, Laura; Gibbons, Philip; Manning, Adrian; Lindenmayer, David B


Quantifying the population trends of species is crucial to achieving effective conservation action. However, deriving accurate and reliable indices of change is difficult due to the paucity and complexity of population data. There is a growing need to assess the inferential status of reported trend estimates given their pertinence to evidence-based conservation policy and funding. In this review, we used a simple scoring system to assess the rigour of population assessments using Australian...[Show more]
